  1. Hi all, I am going to be in Seattle for three weeks, is there anything worth collecting in the area? Any info would be appreciated. Feel free to PM me . Thanks, Herb
  2. Hi, because our passion is not only about rocks and is made at 50% by trips, discoveries, and people I will post here pictures of my hunting spots, japanese panorama, people, place which made my fossil hunting trips particular, memorable and enriched me as much as fossils do. I hope you will enjoy this thread and that you will be able to have an insight of my Japan.

    Lyme Regis - June '16

    This summer we took a rare vacation away from the kids, and headed across the pond to England. While the focus of the trip was on mudlarking on the Thames (finding everything from a Roman pottery fragment, 100-year old coins, a hammered silver coin, tons of pottery shards from the 1400s, clay pipes from the 17th-19th centuries, Tudor pins & nails, etc.) and on walking across the country on Hadrian's Wall Path, we decided to take a day out of the journey to do a little fossil hunting - a first for us. We decided to visit Lyme Regis, on the southern coast of England, where Mary Anning once s

    Fossils found down at Beaumaris

    Hello, recently I went down to Beaumaris and found some fossils. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what they are? Thanks
  5. After some thought Ive decided to do a trip tomorrow to Green Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I think conditions will be fine until about 5 or 6 PM. I plan on starting early, so anyone interested in joining up let me know. I plan on starting about 7:45am. And working 2 favorite spots of mine.
  6. If anyone is game Sunday morn Oct 2 Post Oak Creek. (Sherman Tex.) Got new screen dying to try them out. Hope to see some of us there. Jess B.

    Greens Mill Run

    Hey Guys! So I know there is a Fossil hunting trip this Sunday coming up in GMR North Carolina. Is anyone on here close enough to there to let me know how high the creek is right now?? I know there has been tons of rain and I was just wondering if the water might go down by this weekend..? Thanks in advance! HollyJo
  8. So, I finally did it. Since this weekend was labor day weekend and we didn't have any other plans laid out for Saturday, I made my dream trip to Chatsworth a reality. The official time it was supposed to take to get to the site according to google maps was one and a half hours, although it felt like less time, despite GPS blunders along the way. After successfully finding the destination on Tibbs Bridge road, I wasted no time in making my steady way down the path from the bridge to the slowly flowing Consauga river, eagerly pursuing the trilobites below. I was immediately scanning the ground w

    Gainesville Ring Park Trip, July 27th

    Found myself with about an hour of free time yesterday afternoon and hoped in for some tooth hunting at Ring Park. There was some good rain on Monday that washed a lot of stuff into my usual spots so I got a good amount of medium/largish teeth in that time, and a few dugong bones and fossilized wood to boot! Was nice and cool under the trees too!
  10. 3 days in the aftermath of my fossil hunting adventures in Nashville, I finally have gathered the time to tell the world about it today. We arrived in Nashville the day before we set out, and looking out the eindow before we even got to our hotel, I could see cliff after cliff with rocks that weathered out of them lining the bottom of them, leabing me to fantasize what lied within the rocks. As it was nearly 10:00 PM when we arrived at our Mariott hotel, we set out to eat dinner at a local restaurant, and came back to rest up for the big day tommorow. I personally had a nearly sleepless night
  11. I am coming down to Pompano Beach/Ft. Lauderdale area in a couple days. Anyone have some fossil hunting suggestions or want to get together?
  12. I had an opportunity to go down to Westmoreland twice this week because I was lucky enough to have off work. The first day I took my GF with me because she had off as well. The first day was pretty nice and sunny, the wind wasn't a factor that day so it was perfect for hunting in the water. Being down there only a short time I found one of the most beat up shamer megs I've ever found. Im not sure how it could've gotten this bad, but atleast it was a good sign. We found a few teeth that day including a decent little Snaggletooth. On the second day i went down by myself and found that the wind h
  13. I will be heading to Fayetteville NC in March. Any ideas on good sites to explore for some fossils? I am not set on a particular time period, and will have a rental car to drive some and can stay in other locations. Thanks in advance!!
  14. I don’t know where else to ask, I need your expertise. I've had a great opportunity come my way, but i'm out of my element and need help from like-minded fossil collectors. I've collected fossils in the rivers of Florida and in New York state. I love collecting vertebra and joint bones, and of course teeth, but never in the low country of South Carolina. I will be saying at Harry’s Fish Camp on Lake Marion from the 19th to the 27th with some friends. Were all kayak fishermen, but I love fossils, and they know this and are expecting me to take them on a trip or two. We will all have kayaks a
  15. Hi guys! A few days ago my dad and I went to Yass, NSW Australia. We went to two specific locations, and found placoderms, shells, nautiloids and trilobites. Don't forget the coral! Btw, all this stuff is Mid Devonian! Here are some pics! Fossil: Phacops sp. Location: Black Range Road, Yass, NSW Australia Fossil: ?Dalmanites sp? Location: Black Range Road, Yass, NSW Australia Fossil: Phacops - Dalmanites? Location: Black Ranged Road, NSW Australia I'll upload a few more later!
  16. Hi everyone, I've been trying to plan this for a while as I've wanted to go to Mineral Wells Fossil Park (http://www.mineralwellsfossilpark.com). My plan is to be there around 8:30 am or so, get a few hours done before the sun goes crazy. Afterwards, if anyone knows good locations, we can visit those, otherwise we can call it a day! If anyone is interested in meeting up that day, let me know! The more the merrier. Cheers, Hashem
  17. DEER LAKE TRIP REPORT - MAJOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION Deer Lake was our first fossil trip this year. If you haven't been there recently, the Deer Lake fossil site is totally transformed. There is major highway construction that wraps around the site and has exposed tons of Devonian rubble. It looks like an on ramp is being constructed there the way it curves around the site. Most of the areas that were previously posted are now part of the construction. There are walls of Devonian exposure, huge piles of rubble, lots of new exposures. However, in this Mahantango formation, most of the de

    Are These Crinoid Pinnules?

    Are these crinoid pinnules? My wife (the one in our family with the "fossil eye") found this on August 10 on our trip to central New York - we were looking in a very low strata (about 20 feet lower (deeper) than the Devonian "Tully limestone" strata) - this lower strata was a thick (15 foot) layer of very hard blue-grey and orange rock (lots of iron in the shale). There were very few fossils in the layer, a few shells and crinoid stems. We had given ourselves 10 more minutes and I told Nancy, "Let's try to find something really special before we go." A few minutes later she came up to me a
  19. TRIP REPORT - TULLY, NY Finds included Orthocone Cephalopods, Trilobites, Nautiloids, Devonian Assemblages We didn't have much time for fossil site visits this year so our 4th of July weekend had to be special. We decided to combine fossils and fishing which gave us 2 days at Tully NY for fossils, and 3 days at Lake Cayuga for boating/fishing and fossiling. This report covers the Tully site visit. I'll post a separate trip report for Lake Cayuga. As our friends on the Forum know, Nan and I try to set specific goals and targets for each fossil site visit and that's what we did for our 4t
  20. 4th of July - Trip Report (sneak preview) Just got back from our 4th of July fossil-fishing trip - will do a full trip report soon but in the meantime here are a few quick pix of our trip. We went to Tully NY and found a few fossils but fairly notable - hopefully getting identified in the Fossil ID section. Nan found 2 trilos at Tully, then we went fossiling and fishing at Lake Cayuga and spent half a day collecting lots of trilobites at a company-owned site where they give permission to collect. Here's a very quick preview: The first pic shows Nan with a trilo found at our normal T

    Planning First Fossil Outing

    Hello everyone, I'm somewhat new to fossil collecting. My son is in scouts and we've been working together on a lot of geology projects. We are planning our first fossil trip and are pretty excited. I assume our best bet is hunting for various ordovician critters. I've done some homework to determine areas that might be the most successful (success would mean finding anything fairly quickly for an 8-year-old). I've combed through the Fossil Forum and found locations suggested by Bob Russell, JimB88 and others in the northern Illinois area. I've then searched through geological maps and goog
  22. Any interest in mounting a trip to the Lakefield Oval this weekend? I am going to be in the area and thought I might try my luck and see if I can find any trilobites. Prob going to try for Sunday morning... but open to anytime if others are interested.... Was reading the Ontario's Ordovician post started by Northern Sharks, May 29 2011 08:04 PM http://www.thefossil...__hl__lakefield and also http://www.thefossil...912#entry234912 .... and it looks promising. Anyone want to join in?
